“The Greatest Wealth Is Health”
April 2016 Insights
Spring is a great time to launch or ramp up health & wellness priorities. Let’s face it, whether it’s about the 10lbs you’ve been wanting to lose forever, improving your flexibility and/or strength, managing health concerns and stress, or increasing your energy and stamina for daily living, the powerful affects of attending to our health & wellness impacts every aspect of our lives, supporting us to break through plateaus and tap into our potential. Almost every women I work with, regardless of age and reasons bringing them to our coaching relationship, inevitably winds up exploring this very important component of their lives with me so I thought I’d take advantage of this naturally motivating time of the year and use this month’s newsletter to highlight a four step process.

Is The Grass Really Greener On The Other Side?
March 2016 Insights
Most of you all know I have two teenage children, so as I am sure many of you can relate to, I am in constant competition with the allure of social media for their attention. Their cell phones and laptops seem to have become an appendage to their bodies, rarely other than when these items need to be recharged do I see them without them. Conversations about how many “likes” they received or how many followers they have, comes up often. Understandably, they know of no other world that existed before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and the infamous #hashtag becoming an everyday household symbol. Social media is a way of life for them and now us and on some level I understand the value it provides, however, what I find unfortunate and a bit disturbing is how all these social media feeds breed what I refer to as “the grass is seemingly greener on the other side” syndrome.

Resist The Urge To Hibernate

What Does Spirituality Mean To You?
June 2015 Insights
I’ve intentional stayed away from writing about the concept of spirituality knowing it would conjure up different thoughts and feelings for everyone. Hesitant, to take a very personal experience and write about it generally so that it could be helpful to most, was a bit intimidating to me. Actually to be honest up until about 3 years ago, if someone asked me about my spiritual beliefs I pretty much felt ill equip in answering that question. But I’ve since come to realize, especially now that I have been coaching for over 4 years, how essential investing in one’s spiritual growth is. The rewards in fostering this aspect of our lives can be hugely impactful. So naturally, it makes complete sense to take this month’s Keys to Success Insights, regardless but yet respectful of each woman’s spiritual beliefs to share how cultivating the concept of spirituality can be significantly helpful in taking charge of your health and well-being.

“Love Yourself First and Everything Else Falls Into Place”
February 2015 Insight
So true! Self-love is a critical component to living life well! It impacts almost every aspect of our lives. From social and intimate relationships to the image we project at work and in our communities as well as how effectively we cope with life challenges. It’s development can only occur if direct actions are taken to support one’s physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. So in the spirit of Valentines Day, a holiday many of us typically designate as a time to express our love to those near and dear to us, I’m going to ask you to do the same for yourself! (more…)
